Product description


Series 8

Rublev Colours Naples Yellow Dark (Lead Antimonate Yellow) is an opaque bright yellow, fine grained with medium tinting strength. This is genuine lead antimonate yellow made according to historical recipes. This is the historical pigment (not a mixture of pigments to make Naples yellow hue) ground in linseed oil without any additives or fillers. It is ground on stone mills repeatedly to a smooth paste. Hold the tube of paint in your hands and you will feel the difference from convenience hue paints made by other manufacturers—the genuine color is so much heavier. Load your brush with it and see the difference.

Lead antimonate yellow has been made in various periods as early as the sixteenth to fourteenth century B.C.E. at Thebes. Lead antimonate yellow reached its highest popularity in European art between about 1750 and 1850 after which it was gradually replaced by chrome yellow (lead chromate) and later cadmium yellow (cadmium sulfide).

Lead antimonate yellow has not been rated for lightfastness by ASTM International, but independent studies have shown that it is permanent in most vehicles and, according to Doerner, can be used with all other pigments without alteration.

Rublev Colours Naples Yellow Dark (Lead Antimonate) Artists Oils

Drawdown Note: The scan of the "drawdown" (left) contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns are scraped to show undertones.

Swatch Note: The color swatch was created using a thin tint mixed with an equal part of linseed oil (left) and a solid tint mixed mixed with an equal amount of titanium dioxide (right) applied on acrylic primed canvas. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
